The first two were really good and I was excited when I saw this on Amazon for very cheap during Xmas time so I picked it up.

We continue with the next girl of the Disreputable Debutants, Arabella. Arabella is convinced she will never find a well-connected husband. She is a bluestocking at heart and she wishes she could be a doctor like her grandfather was. She is forced to accompany her family on a Grand Tour of Switzerland. While there she bumps into Gabriel, the Earl of Langdale. He is no stranger to scandal, however, when he and Arabella are caught in a compromising situation, he is obliged to offer for her hand. They soon must battle together to find love and their future when someone is out to destroy Gabriel and take the Earldom from him.

I loved these two together. It was so sad that it took so long for the love. Arabella does catch the feelings first, but Gabriel is convinced he cannot love so it took him way longer to realize he loves her...even though it was there the whole time. I wanted to shake him but you can for sure understand WHY he doesn't believe he CAN love or even believes in love. Grrrr to that father of his.

Arabella did annoy me too once in a while. I wanted to shake her. She has extremely low self-esteem WHICH I get. But it did get old especially near the end when it is obvious he doesn't care how she looks or that she has a big brain. She was quick to believe the worst. He never was ONCE dishonest with her so I don't get why she was so quick to believe he would lie. He never once did so it was really annoying. I'm surprised she even believed Gabriel when he told her the real story there. But again...I do understand why when you find out about her past and what happened to her. Plus that aunt of hers was a total witch. Terrible. I did really want Arabella to have a moment with the aunt and have that closure. Maybe in the future. It would be lovely. was really annoying how she treated Gabriel who honestly never lied to her about his past or what his thought process was even when he knew it was not pleasant, he was honest.

The big drama of the cousin trying to steal the title was very interesting and I was not sure how it was going to be resolved. When it did seem like it was resolved...I was annoyed. It seemed overly simple. But then there is was a twist and our baddie was not going out without a fight. That made me happy to have that last bit of conflict. Can't spoil it but I'm glad the twist happened...I was going to be real mad if it was so simply resolved.

I did read the ebook version of this. I know I said I was going to do the audio but it wasn't available yet and the ebook was on sale soooo yaaaa. I did enjoy it but I loved that narrator of the first book. Maybe the third ;)

Overall, I did really like this. I had some issues with Arabella. I can understand the WHY she has low self-esteem, but she had no reason to not believe Gabriel. He was honest with her from day one. I can't wait for book 3! I'll give this 3 stars.
